From the Land of Band Box Records

Billboard Magazine ran mini-biographies from 1959 into the early 1960’s sometimes providing us with interesting tidbits – Each biography was generally tied to a current release on behalf of the artist

JOE BARRY (“I’M A FOOL TO CARE”)

(PEAKED AT NUMBER 24 IN 1961 – BARRY WOULD HAVE ONE ADDITIONAL HOT 100 SINGLE)

The record was originally released on the Jin record label – Joe was born Joseph Barrios in 1939 and died in 2004 at age 65
